Die Galaxea paucisepta ist eine einfach zu haltende LPS. In Bodennähe mit genügend Strömung wächst sie sehr gut. Die Kampftentakeln können sehr lang werden (ca. 10 - 15 cm) und lassen sich durch die Strömung immer mehr in die Länge ziehen. Die Tentakeln können sich an, in der Nähe stehenden, Korallen festsetzen und diese stark schädigen. Ein Entfernen der Tentakeln von der betroffenen Koralle ist nur möglich indem man die Tentakeln abreißt.
